Chulsu Kim (@chulsukim) has three tenets for extraordinary street photography: “Go with your instincts. Take lots of photos. Just keep walking.” The photographer, who is originally from Yamaguchi, Japan, has a knack for capturing candid expressions throughout the streets, parks and metro stations of Tokyo. “No matter who the subject is, there is always a moment when they become a great actor,” he says. “I feel a tremendous buzz when I come across such moments.” After a day collecting hundreds of photos, Chulsu feels exhilarated and connected to the city’s pulse: “Directly experiencing the ever-changing urban environment and the way people live — it’s really stimulating.”
